Hello guys and dolls! I finally did it! I picked a pattern to make my graduation dress!
It is Simplicity 2444 with the cape collar

and here are the details which define why I fell in love with the pattern.
The cape collar is adorable for one. It is what attracted me to the pattern.

The bodice front has 4 darts and the front skirt has 6 pleats
A bit hard to see with my wild woman fabric, but trust me! this dress has great lines!

And the best thing ever!!
I will have pockets to keep some lip stick and my cell with me all during grad

I have 4 months to decide on the fabric because I will need to sew it up next semester break.
That will be my last semester break ever!!
Right now I am thinking I will get polka dot fabric and make the collar the color of the dots
Besides graduation, I plan on making more of this pattern simply because I have fallen in love with the fit and the look. There will most definitely be a nautical one in my future!
What are your thoughts?
